The National Executive Committee of the Social Democratic Front-SDF met in Bamenda last weekend and during the meeting one of the key points on the agenda was the launching of over 20.000 signatures for the immediate release of Laurent Gbagbo. In his preliminary remarks SDF Chairman, Ni John Fru Ndi said that the petition is not to change power in Cote d’Ivoire but it is intended to establish the truth about what happened before Laurent Gbagbo was kidnapped. According to Ni John Fru Ndi, the petition is only about the liberation of President Laurent Gbagbo “because in the absence of the responsible actors of Cote d’Ivoire’s crisis, any decision taken at the Hague will be void of any legality.
Fru Ndi added that “today is a very important day because we are launching a petition in Cameroon which we sincerely hope will obtain the adherence without fear nor shame of a vast majority of people in Cameroon from all ranks and file and across the political spectrum, to call for the immediate release of President Laurent Gbagbo, from the unjust, and unsuitable situation in which a few known impostors of the legitimacy of the International community have placed him.
He continued that the international community cannot be shaped into the wish of neo-imperialism and cannot continuously, in the 21st century cannot be subject to wishful justice. To Ni John Fru Ndi, the petitions will true justice a chance.
